\X7E are slowly emerging from a period of sterile
imitation in the decorative arts. Creative
work is being done and patterns bearing a relation
to our own times and needs are being evolved.
The result is a new type of design which bids fair
to form a modern decorative style. A few ex-
amples — all based on established principles of
design but in keeping with the new style — have been
assembled in Gallery II, where they will be on view
during the month of May. These include French
glass by Maurice Marinot, metalwork by Claude
Linossier, bookbinding by Pierre Legrain, textiles
by Raoul Dufy, Swedish glass by Simon Gate,
and American pottery by Henry Varnum Poor, as
well as some interesting American and German
textiles and porcelains made in Italy.
The Museum is particularly indebted to those
who have kindly lent pieces for the exhibition.
Their names appear on the labels.
